Testimonials from Camp

"'This is our second year at KU. We loved being in the bigger gym without the arena. KU staff at the dorms were top notch and very friendly and accommodating to our girls.'" Coach AndreaStaley High School
"'We loved the team routine because we always take it back and perform it at our first pep assembly. We also liked the hip hop dances as we tend to use those for our football games and pep assemblies. Super beneficial to the start of our season!'" Coach KeianaShawnee Mission West High School
"'The facilities of KU were great! Everything was convenient, especially eating in the same dorm building to then walk a short distance to the Rec. The new suite-style dorms were comforting to be in.'" Coach ChristinePiper High School
